In this article, Fabbaloo‘s founder Kerry Stevenson takes a look at the biggest in 3D printing in terms of market cap. The stock market and 3D printing stocks have been through a turbulent period. Many companies have seen their market caps drop dramatically, particularly those that went public via SPAC mergers in recent months. Nevertheless, as Kerry points out, it’s always interesting to understand who is going up and who is going down in terms of total company value, and there are always bound to be some interesting surprises.
Which company is the largest in 3D printing market cap?
We take a look again at the latest valuations of major 3D printing companies in the last week.
Publicly traded companies must publish their financial reports as well as be visible on stock markets. The total value of the company can be calculated by multiplying current stock price with number of outstanding shares. This is the market capitalization, which represents the company’s current value.
It’s a great number of compare companies, as the market capitalization can be leveraged to provide more capabilities for the company. One example is that shares could be used to collateralize a loan. These and other similar transactions could result in cash, which could be used for new projects.
In other words, “market cap”, as it is known, is quite important.
You might think it’s not important to monitor these companies each week, as their value is realized only when stocks are sold. Sometimes, however, companies experience events that can cause their value rise or fall. This weekly post will help you keep track of such events.
Please note that this list does not contain all 3D printing companies. Some 3D printing companies are not publicly traded. Therefore, we do not know their true size. Other companies like Siemens and HP have large 3D printer divisions, but are part larger businesses, so it is impossible to know the true scale of their 3D print activities. [editors note: this is what market studies such as 3dpbm’s are for, which count the machines that are known to be on the market and other industry insights in order to estimate the size of these companies or their 3D printing businesses].
Our January 2022 report had a total leaderboard value of US$15.8B. The value of the report is US$6.8B this week, which is a 57% drop in value. Worse, the January report featured three fewer companies. The year 2022 was not one of the best years to invest in 3D printers. It could have been one the worst years in history.
Kerry goes on to identify Essentium, ICON, and VulcanForms Candidates to go public this calendar year.
